With all the precipitation this winter of 2009-2010 I expect it will be a great year for butterflies. (It was more like New Jersey or New York than Texas actually!) With so much rain the plant roots have had a healthy down time and will be bursting alive very soon! Some plants for butterfly larvae will have to be restarted or procured of course, but now is a good time to be on the way making plans to welcome the butterflies back into our gardens!

What is everyone doing to prepare for them?

They are definitely here! I've got cats everywhere! I've already released new American Lady, Variegated Fritillary and Red Admiral butterflies.

Odd that your passiflora foetida looks pink. Out here they are light blue to purple.
My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.
